Café friends and contributors Dr. Meredith Gould and Canon Dan Webster are getting married today. As people who work to empower sharing the Gospel online, it’s not terribly surprising that this will be one of the most “wired” weddings many of us have ever seen.

The blog they’re created for the actual ceremony takes its name from the Twitter hashtag they and their friends are using to chat about the event #3xCharm.

The service itself will be streamed on the blog, and there’s this note to friends who are attending in person:

“As advocates of using social media wisely and well to serve church and faith, we wish to draw your attention to this note tucked right under information about the organ prelude:

Although we ask you to silence your phone, 

do feel free to post whatever moves or inspires you!

Congratulations to both of you on this happy day!

Can somebody tell me where this entry went? [Should be previous to this one]

[It’s really annoying to craft a (somewhat lengthy) response, preview it, and then when I go to post, see “No such entry ‘15135’”! (Yet when you hit “Previous” on this entry, it’s still there. O_o)]

Look like, from the response we received from people attending IRL and people who viewed online, that we were able to use social media to enhance rather than detract from the experience of sacred community.

I loved being married at the Episcopal Cathedral of the Incarnation. ALL guests were invited to the table of the Lord and I was blessed beyond measure to see who, during our wedding, participated as One Body.


Mazel Tov! 🙂

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
